Seeking: Positive Male Role Models, Join us on 1/25. (We know you exist!)

Two young men holding signs about what mentoring means to them

So real talk, Men: the past few months have not made you look very good. With all the attention being drawn to the misconduct of powerful men in our society, it’s so important right now for boys and young men to have a positive male role model in their life.

How often do we take a moment to look at the positive male influences who shaped our lives? Think for a moment: who were the important men in your life that influenced you? Many boys today don’t have that positive male presence in their lives, and are desperately in need of one.

Do you wish you could help the next generation of boys grown up to be positive, supportive, and respectful men? In our one-to-one mentoring program, there are eight boys on our waitlist for every girl. The vast majority of them want a male mentor, and are waiting for you to step up to help them!

If you want to step up, join PYD for our January 25th Bring-A-Friend Night at LIR! You’ll be able to meet current mentors and PYD staff, and can learn more about how you can make a difference in the life of a boy or young man with a disability.

Speakers will include mentor Jeffrey Weinstein, as well as PYD youth participant Austin Carr! Meet and mingle with others also interested in learning more about mentoring and advocacy work for youth with disabilities. And if in-person mentoring isn’t your thing, we’ll also have information there on our online mentoring program!

Get ready to learn how you can have fun in your community, develop key skills employers look for, and showcase reliability and commitment to your community!

Thursday, January 25th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
LIR (903 Boylston Street Boston, MA 02115)
